Serve on Orange County’s Grand Jury
Applications for the 2018-2019 Orange County Grand Jury are now open. If you have an interest in serving the people of Orange County, consider applying for this position and making a positive impact on your community.

The major functions of a grand jury are divided into criminal indictments and civil investigations. While both functions are executed by the same panel in Orange County, the civil investigation portion requires the majority of time. Service on the Grand Jury is a full-time position for a full year.

Requirements for service include:
  • Orange County Resident
  • U.S. Citizen
  • 18 or Older
  • Knowledge of English
  • Sound Judgement
The Courts are looking for a diversified panel, in age and ethnic backgrounds, in order to properly represent Orange County. If you’re thinking about taking a gap year from college, are looking for an internship, or just want to be involved in making your community a better place, the Grand Jury is an excellent opportunity.

OCTA Long Range Transportation Plan Survey
To help relieve congestion, OCTA is updating its Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) for the County. Called Designing Tomorrow 2040, the general goals of the 2018 LRTP are to assess the performance of the transportation system over a 20+ year horizon, and to identify the projects that best address the needs of the system based on expected population, housing and employment growth, and financial and revenue assumption forecasts.

As we look into the future, increasing population and employment opportunities will have a major impact on day-to-day commutes. With projected increases of 10 percent in population, 11 percent in housing, and 17 percent in employment, the time spent in traffic is expected to increase by 66 percent by the year 2040 if no additional improvements are made to Orange County's transportation system.

Your thoughts are important and can influence the future of Orange County transportation. By taking this survey, you will help OCTA prioritize improvements that will affect your daily journey throughout the county.
